Trayvon Martin: ‘killed by white supremacy’ and raped by the white liberal elite

trayvon martin died

THE Trayvon Martin case has made many question the meaning of justice. How can an unarmed man be shot dead and no laws broken? The unarmed black man was shot dead because the armed vigilante wrongly thought he was up to no good in Florida, a state that allows paranoid self-declared neighborhood watch captains to “stand your ground”.

Only the two men shooter George Zimmerman and victim Trayvon Martin know for certain what happened. One of them is dead.

What this is about public opinion. And race.

The  FBI  found no evidence that Zimmerman, a Democrat, was racist. But the story has been all about race.

Andrew Sullivan , who is gay, notes:

 I’m not going to second-guess the jurors, except to say the obvious: if that were a jury of Trayvon’s peers, then I’m a heterosexual.

Were they a jury of Zimmerman’s peers?

In The Nation , Aura Bogado goes further:

White Supremacy Acquits George Zimmerman

A jury has found George Zimmerman not guilty of all charges in connection to death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. But while the verdict came as a surprise to some people, it makes perfect sense to others. This verdict is a crystal-clear illustration of the way white supremacy operates in America.

What evidence of that?

She says five of the jurors were white. The other was “of colour”.

George Zimmerman is Hispanic, or white hispanic” , as the media billed him:

Zimmerman’s apparent ideology—one that is suspicious of black men in his neighborhood, the “assholes who always get away—” is one that adheres to white supremacy.

It was replicated in the courtroom by his defense, whose team tore away at Rachel Jeantel, questioning the young woman as if she was taking a Jim Crow–era literacy test. A defense that, during closing, cited slave-owning rapist Thomas Jefferson, played an animation for the jury based on erroneous assumptions, made racially coded accusations about Trayvon Martin emerging “out of the darkness,” and had the audacity to compare the case of the killing of an unarmed black teenager to siblings arguing over which one stole a cookie.

Got that? The entire defence team are racist
